Blackened Fish Tacos
Unplug the deep fryer and sauté your fresh fish in a little healthy coconut oil. Garnish with a little sweet and spicy mango salsa.
4 4-ounce grouper fillets, or any other white flaky fish
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (can be adjusted based on spiciness preference)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
2–3 tablespoons Kelapo coconut oil
1. Mix all seasonings in a small bowl. Coat fish in blackening mixture; adjust quantity to amount desired.
2. Heat coconut oil over medium heat. Add grouper fillets to pan and cook on each side until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your fillets.
3. Meanwhile, very lightly coat a skillet with coconut oil and heat corn tortillas over low-medium heat 30 seconds to a minute on each side or until heated through.
4. Top each tortilla with small slices of fish, mango salsa, sour cream, slaw, or any other toppings you like.
